Frequently Asked Questions

Do I actually get to take the animal home with me?

No. The Adopt program is a symbolic adoption and the animal will remain at the Houston Zoo. Please click here to learn more about why wild animals do not make good pets.

Will anyone else adopt this animal?

Yes. It takes more than one adoption to feed and care for an animal all year. All adoptions support the care and feeding of the animal residents at the Houston Zoo.

How quickly will my Adopt package arrive?

Adopt packages usually arrive within 10 business days. Please let us know if you have a rush situation and we will do our best to accommodate you.

May I Adopt onsite at the Zoo?

No. All adoptions must be done online or over the phone. The package will be shipped to you or the gift recipient.

How long does my adoption last?

Each adoption lasts for one year but our animal family would love to have your continued support. When your year is up, you may renew your adoption online or over the phone.

Who can I contact if I have further questions?

Please contact Brittany Mead at adopt@houstonzoo.org or
